PostgreSQL in Linux / Unix server

Post by JORGEMAL » Thu 24 Oct 2013 00:00

If I use PostgreSQL DB in a Linux/Unix platform, is it possible to use dotConnect (or other Devart product) to access data from Windows clients?

With respect,

Yes, you can access from a Windows client with dotConnect for PostgreSQL to a PostgreSQL server which is installed on Linux/Unix platform. The database server operating system doesn't affect dotConnect for PostgreSQL. dotConnect for PostgreSQL works with PostgreSQL installed on Linux and Windows.

dotConnect for PostgreSQL can also be used on a Linux/Unix platform under Mono. However dotConnect for PostgreSQL can't be installed on Linux/Unix. You should install dotConnect for PostgreSQL on a computer with a Windows OS and then copy the required assemblies like Devart.Data.dll or Devart.Data.PostgreSQL.dll to OS with Mono.
Besides, when you create an application that uses Devart assemblies, it must have a license resource. License information is a specially formed embedded resource. It is checked when a connection is opened. As you can't install dotConnect for PostgreSQL on Mono, you will have to build the license resource manually on a Windows computer, and then copy it to Mono computer and attach it to your project as an Embedded Resource.
